Electrical Muscle Stimulation

The modality electrical-stimulation, commonly known as E-stim, uses electrical currents to cause a muscle group to contract.  Electrodes are placed around the affected area by the Chiropractor.  The doctor can then adjust the amount of electrical current depending on the patient’s comfort level.  E-stim achieves results by strengthening the muscle, increasing blood flow to the affected area to promote healing, and decreasing pain.   Patients report a slight tingling sensation in their muscles, but not pain.  Some patients even state that it is very relaxing and feels as if they’re getting a “gentle massage.”
